No: jit-lock has nothing to do with font-lock, except for the fact that
font-lock is its main client (and that historically jit-lock was written
only for font-lock), so it's naturally tuned towards serving font-lock
better than other potential clients.

I.e. jit-lock-register's function will be called regardless of whether
font-lock is enabled or not.

The docstring doesn't mention font-lock.
